REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Out In the Sticks for Rural Thursday

Cricket Flat is a large territory just northeast of our little town.  It's noted for old homesteads and a serious lack of water.  Many of the residents who live there drive pickups with huge plastic water tanks on the back year-round.  Not for me!  But it's an interesting place to wander around...there are named roads intersecting everywhere, and I finally have them figured out (I've lived here for only 36 years!).   There are some totally junky places, too.  But where there is junk, there might be an old vehicle.   (This flatbed pickup truck has been edited with Topaz Adjust, primarily  the HDR feature.)


It's RURAL THURSDAY again..... I'll have to miss next week because my husband and I will be in Brooklyn, NY with our oldest son for 5 days and the following weekend with our youngest son in Portland, OR.

I can remember riding in trucks that were similar to this when I was younger. I think they were rusty then too.

That must have been one shiny red truck, and I love the extra punch that gives the rust. Great capture and processing.
